cos ei = cos 2 = 1*,   sin ei = ei,   sin 2 = Q.
Making these substitutions in the expression for/r, we obtain
/f = Umit rfo-'Q- tV.(l + *)1

where i9 is the angle r makes with the x-axis. YI

By similar reasoning we obtain the following expressions r the transverse acceleration, that is, the component of te acceleration along a perpendicular to the radius vector. * See Appendix AVI-
